BIGSSS Doctoral Colloquium

30.04.2021 Workshop

Eurocentrism in Academia

Jude Kagoro; Hawa Noor Mohammed; Alex Nadège Ouedraogo
Place


Bremen
Time
12.15 pm - 1.45 pm

How come, that in our studies we deal almost exclusively with European and North American theorists and scholars? How and to which extent do they, with their self-references and focus on Europe, displace and ignore the experience and perspectives of other scholars? And what concrete problems for science and non-European scholars arise from the burden of Eurocentrism in academia?

This and more we would like to discuss with you in an event series of the Politschnack. Our guests in the introductory session on 30th of April at 12:15 (c.t.) concerning “Eurocentrism in Academia” will be:

Alex Nadège Quedraogo (InIIS/SFB 1342), who will talk about the general problematic consequences of Eurocentrism in academia, Hawa Noor Mohammed (BIGSSS), who will talk about the discourse of Eurocentrism with reference to research on the so called “New Terrorism” or “Islamic (st) Terrorism” and Jude Kagoro (InIIS), who will talk about the burden of Eurocentrism in the interpretation of Politics in Africa. All of our guests are political scientists and researchers at University Bremen.

No matter if you would like to discuss or only listen, if you are student or staff: you are very much welcome! The discussion will take place via Zoom. If you would like to participate, feel free to join by clicking on the link below. The discussion will be held in English:

Prof. Jennifer Pan, PhD (Stanford University) will give a presentation on her recent publication "Welfare for Autocrats: How Social Assistance in China Cares for Its Rulers". Join via Zoom here.

Jennifer Pan is an Assistant Professor of Communication at Stanford University. Her research focuses on political communication and authoritarian politics. Pan uses experimental and computational methods with large-scale datasets on political activity in China and other authoritarian regimes to answer questions about how autocrats perpetuate their rule. How political censorship, propaganda, and information manipulation work in the digital age. How preferences and behaviors are shaped as a result.

Her book, Welfare for Autocrats: How Social Assistance in China Cares for its Rulers (Oxford, 2020) shows how China's pursuit of political order transformed the country’s main social assistance program, Dibao, for repressive purposes. Her work has appeared in peer reviewed publications such as the American Political Science Review, American Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Politics, and Science.

BIGSSS Doctoral Colloquium

via Zoom, https://zoom.us/j/98266944212?pwd=MUFpK2ZrZ2VxTHU4SFpsaWdvRytnUT09

Organizers: Dr. Steffen Bandlow-Raffalski / Dr. Mandy Boehnke

Goal and Format

The colloquium offers the opportunity to present current issues (could be questions regarding your methods design, theoretical framework etc.), (first) results of individual dissertation projects or drafts of conference or journal papers and to discuss them with fellows and faculty. Presenters should make clear what they want from the discussion and send these expectations together with at least an abstract of their topic to the participants. The presentation itself should not exceed 25-30 minutes. Typically, presentations will get a short (5-7 min) comment by an expert faculty member or fellow to be followed by an open discussion with the audience. The fellows-first rule applies.
